  • I'm UK based and I have never heard of them - but a check of their website shows that they are apparently a local family business based in Northampton. Probably explains why I've never heard of ...
  • Hi to CXBob I guess my gear list does suggest that I've had (still have!) GAS so I don't blame you for not believing me! However, one word sums it up and says it all re any more GAS expenditure - ...
  • Replied in Thanks to all...
    Thanks to all for your quite detailed replies - to be honest, I just chucked out my mental meanderings expecting them to be ignored so ta for the info. Thanks to Drplusplus for DxO lens info - ...
  • Whatever the future of the N1 system, I have, 'with eyes open', invested a fair bit in it and there is no way that I'm going to invest in a new latest-and-greatest system from any manufacturer - ...
  • Entirely agree - I'd rather keep the money it would cost to invest in a new system and put that towards a trip somewhere! My V1/V3 and 'Holy Trinity' of lenses (can we call them that?!) and others ...
  • Love the lily fading into a black background in particular - but all look good - nice one.
  • Nope - I don't think so either. Possibly a bit of swimming sideways with/against the tide... who knows. My reason for buying N1 were pretty simple initially - the V1 firesale!! I was getting to the ...
  • Thanks! Err, yes the workshop isn't mine (it's actually the 'old workshop' at Calke Abbey, Derbys, UK) although mine isn't far behind! The bird is a mousebird taken at Knysna, S.Africa.
  • ...... CLS market (no moon photos at the moment!). Except it isn't of course. Good for Sonyshine and everyone who's posted on this thread - where are all the -ve doom-mongers, trolls etc etc - gone ...
  • I'd leave my V3, 32, 6.7-13, 70-300 etc in the camera bag whilst I went to the bar at Heathrow en route to S.Africa/States/Canada/wherever etc for a great outdoors holiday. Yes, I'd like to see an ...
  • Judging by some of the comments in the News section I thought I'd better check that my V3 + various lenses still work just in case Nikon had rigged them to suddenly explode following the DL ...
  • Ask Nikon what they think it should be called - could be the most confusing/hilarious answer since the introductory prices of the V1,V2,V3........DL, whatever.
  • Just to confirm that the V series of N1 cameras have never offered auto-bracketing of anything (exposure, white balance ec) - one of the things that annoyed many folk for the (initial) price, ...
  • The Nikon V4 - that'll really grab the headlines & make this old news. Possibly.

  • Hi Brandon yes, since I wrote the OP I have re-made the referenced file structure and am using it again. I couldn't really say why, but I just find the GUI suits my eye and it's just a breeze to ...
  • Yes, I'm no I.T expert but I agree in that I think that RAW recognition upgrades were somehow (!) built into the OS, not the software itself. Who knows, whilst I don't think I'll be buying any more ...
  • Created discussion thread Anyone still using Aperture?
    Without getting involved in the old Aperture v Lightroom 'discussions' that used to go on forever, I was always a big fan of Aperture, the layout, the import/file structure etc etc. When Apple ...
  • Great Stuff indeed - thanks for posting. I would agree with other posters that the price on the page for the CX 70-300 can make you swallow hard but compared to other system offerings it does offer ...
  • I think, if you read it carefully, that it means the relationship between the D500 and D5 is the same as the D300 and D3 had. It doesn't mean the new cameras have the same systems as the old...

  • Thanks for the great tip - I have to admit that I've never really explored manual focus with any lens over the years - in whatever format! Just occasionally when forced into it. Nor have I done a ...
